    Ethics of University Research, Biotechnology and Potential Military Spin-Off.Kathryn Nixdorff & Wolfgang Bender - 2002 - Minerva 40 (1):15-35.
    The paper provides a briefintroduction to the biotechnology revolutionand its impact upon biological researchrelevant to military uses. It describes thestatus of biological weapons today, and currentefforts to strengthen the Biological WeaponsConvention with a legally binding complianceprotocol. Specific modifications ofmicro-organisms that may be of military use arediscussed.

    On the Assessment of Genetic Technology: Reaching Ethical Judgments in the Light of Modern Technology.Wolfgang Bender, Katrin Platzer & Kristina Sinemus - 1995 - Science and Engineering Ethics 1 (1):21-32.
    The “Model for Reaching Ethical Judgments in the context of Modern Technologies — the Case of Genetic Technology”, which is presented here, has arisen from the project “Ethical Criteria bearing upon Decisions taken in the field of Biotechnology”. This project has been pursued since 1991 in the Zentrum für interdisziplinäre Technikforschung (ZIT) of the Technical University of Darmstadt, with the purpose of examining decision-making in selected activities involving the production of transgenic plants that have a useful application. The model is (...)
